Zithromax: You can drink alcohol after you finish your zithromax.

Not recommended: There is no direct interaction. However, it is possible that alcohol will affect the absorption of zithromax and will diminish your immune response. It is prudent and a common sense not to drink alcohol while on antibiotic medication.
